Downloading file attachments in bulk from an application

    I have file attachments in an application (around 6000) that I need to download from the application and provide to the customer. Is there a good way to do this without going to each record / field one by one?

    The QuNect Backup tool will do this as well. www.qunect.com.  Contact me if you need a demo.

    If you just want the raw files downloaded you can just create a report that holds the URL to the file attachment field and use a FREE browser extension such as DownThemAll to do the bulk download.

    Oftentimes users want not just the raw file downloaded but some of the metadata associated with the record this file attachment is in. In this case you need to spec out your requirements and use some simple script to coordinate the downloaded files with the downloaded CSV or spreadsheet associated with the metadata

    To download attachments in bulk, I recommend downloading a browser add-on such as DownThemAll. You may find the Firefox add-on here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/downthemall/
